Freeport in the Pass a Loutre WMA area
.

~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Abeastandasavage ~



Ah, memories! I know exactly what you mean. They are the treasures of the mind.



I have some info for you about the Freeport operation in that area.



According to “A History of the Louisiana Sulphur Industry”, by Donia Byrnes

“The Freeport mine site at Garden Island Bay near the mouth of the Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish was a semi-marine operation. Drilling rigs were mounted on barges, and they worked in the canals that were constantly being cut to reach the mine sites. Garden Island Bay had to be built to withstand hurricane winds and high water. In addition to the forests of piles on which the power plant rests, its foundation is a steel and concrete mat topped by 16-foot-high concrete cells, which support the main floor on which the equipment is installed.

Because Garden Island Bay is 20 miles beyond the end of the nearest road, all construction materials had to be transported by water. Since there was a lack of firm ground for storage, sulphur ore was towed, still molten, in specially designed insulated barges to vat sites about 70 miles away in Port Sulphur. This mine site was completed in 1953 and cost $14 million to design and build. It is the third largest sulphur mine in the United States and is still in operation.”



The site is between South Pass and Pass a Loutre. It is mostly in the Pass a Loutre Wild Life Management Area. Dennis Pass, Johnson Pass, Loomis Pass and Cardo Pass wind their way through most of the oil gas and Sulphur platforms in the area.



The large fresh water reservoir impoundment is between Cardo and Dennis Passes beginning where Cardo Pass branches off from Dennis Pass. This water was used as superheated steam and pumped into the under ground / water Sulphur deposits to melt the minerals which was then pumped to the surface.



The main equipment and some of the people facilities for this operation was located on Dennis Pass just across from the impoundment at or about 29° 05.525’N latitude ~ 089°11.586’W longitude.



The center of the large reservoir is at or about 29° 05.180’N ~ 89°12.300’W.



The Pass a Loutre WMA Headquarters in the nearby area by the junction of Dennis and Johnson passes. It is at or about 29° 07.117N ~ 089°12.399’W.



Hope this helps in keeping those memories going.



Merry Christmas
